The Seattle Design Commission advises the Mayor, City Council, and City departments on the design of capital improvements and other projects and policies that shape Seattle's public realm.

Since mid-March 2020 we have transitioned to an online meeting format.  Our meetings are being held in a manner that reflects guidance from the AG office that authorizes online meetings during the term of Governor's Proclamation 20-28
